June 15th: Make a Door Wreath

This year is full of so much adventure, creating, eating and relaxation. Some days I need to remind myself to make these things happen.

Today was simple. Make a little door wreath. 

I started with a wood stick wreath and wrapped some green leaves around it.

Then I took some flowers. I picked these ones because I feel like it can kind of encompass all the seasons.

I glued them on using a hot glue gun.

And that was that. Hopefully it stays together.

January 13th: Make Chalkboard Art

Well, this was not exactly what I had in mind when I added Make Chalkboard Art to my list, but it definitely fits the category and was more fun than just writing or drawing on the board (which I still have to do at some point anyway).

So the last few days I have been working with a refurbished home store down the street from where I work. I went through bins and bins of old frame pieces they had and pieced them together to make one big frame. I painted the wall in the bar I work at with chalkboard paint and then hung the frame around it. 

The bar I work at is changing our beer menu drastically and the taps will be rotating to a different beer every keg, so we needed a spot to write them so customers could see and know when we have something new!

This is going to be so cool!

It actually turned out better than I could have hoped! This weekend I will actually be writing in the content to fill the chalkboard. 

Here’s some other photos I took to get an idea of how it looks a little closer up.

I’ll post a picture sometime later to show the writing in there too!
